Make the Best Maintenance Schedule for Your Septic System

An estimated 600,000 homes and businesses in Minnesota use septic systems to treat wastewater. When these systems aren’t functioning properly, contaminated water may be leaking back into the ground and local waterways. Proper septic maintenance is vital to ensure that Minnesota water stays clean so that we can protect the environment, wildlife, and human health. 

Creating and keeping a regular maintenance schedule for your septic system can help ensure that you don’t miss important services and repairs. We’re here to help you understand everything you need to know about your septic’s needs so that you can help us keep Minnesota water clean. 

Know the Functions of Your Septic System

When you understand the ins and outs of your septic and how it works, it’s much easier to recognize when something is wrong. A common misconception is that if your wastewater is draining, then everything is working fine. However, there could be a number of other internal problems happening that you can’t see, such as issues with the pipes or well water, bacteria growth, or sewage odors. Learn about the components of your septic system so that you can stay on top of your tank needs.

Create Daily Habits for Septic Care

There are many routines and habits that you can develop to ensure that your system lasts and is running well. Limiting water use, watching what you pour down the drain or flush in the toilet, keeping your drain field clear, and being conscious of what cleaners you’re using should all be part of your regular septic maintenance schedule.
